US Acknowledges Torture of Prisoners At Gitmo Bay and Iraq

PhotoGENEVA (AFP) - Washington has for the first time acknowledged to the  United Nations that prisoners have been tortured at US detention centres in Guantanamo Bay, as well as  Afghanistan and  Iraq, a UN source said

The acknowledgement was made in a report submitted to the UN Committee against Torture, said a member of the ten-person panel, speaking on on condition of anonymity.

"They are no longer trying to duck this, and have respected their obligation to inform the UN," the Committee member told AFP.

"They they will have to explain themselves (to the Committee). Nothing should be kept in the dark."

UN sources said it was the first time the world body has received such a frank statement on torture from US authorities.

The Committee, which monitors respect for the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, is gathering information from the US ahead of hearings in May 2006

W're certain that now Bush and the White House will apologize for the stink they created when denying that torture occurred.
